Ginger at GReads created this fantastic TGIF event featuring a question and a weekly recap.

This Friday's Question:
Giving Thanks: Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?
Oh goodness!  This is tough - I've received so many great books over the year!  Well, I lucked out in the ARC department this year, some of my favorite books were advanced copies and I'm so thankful to the publishers!  First up, I received The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh courtesy of Random House.  This was such a heartbreaking and beautiful novel - loved it!

Another of my favorite books this year, When She Woke by Hillary Jordan, was given to me by Algonquin Books.  It was such a well-written and thought-provoking dystopian novel - so glad I read it!

I'm also thankful that I received Boy's Life by Robert McCammon for my birthday this year!  I've always meant to read Boy's Life as it came highly recommended to me from my mother (surprise, surprise we have extremely similar taste in books).  Now, with it glaring at me from the shelves I know I'll get to it soon and I can't wait!

What about you folks?  What books are you thankful for receiving this year?


  1. Yes, we must take our mom's recommendations. (She usually takes ours, right?) Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Reading!

  2. Wow - you got some awesome books this year!

  3. When She Woke has been on my TBR since I first saw it. I can't wait to read this novel!

  4. No wonder Language of Flowers is on your post, such a great book! See my own review here:
